Photo of the Day: @AnthonyWeiner poses with “The Big Salami”

Posted by: ST on September 1, 2013 at 4:38 pm

Just a little over a week before the mayoral primary is held in NYC comes this photo of disgraced former Congressman-turned-mayoral-candidate Anthony Weiner at a local deli (hat tip):

Anthony Weiner is all smiles after getting “The Big Salami” from David Greco (r.), owner of Mike’s Deli and Arthur Avenue Trattoria.

The New York Daily News published the photo and had this humorous write-up:

Anthony Weiner showed off a big Italian sausage at an Arthur Ave. Deli Saturday, agreeing to pose with the ample-sized meat on a campaign stop in the Bronx.

When the Democratic mayoral hopeful walked into Mike’s Deli, owner David Greco said he whipped out the sausage right away.


Greco said Weiner’s sense of humor impressed him. “There were guys pushing salamis into his face. My people, they have no filters,” he said of his employees. “But he was cool about it.”

LOL. Not quite sure which photo is worse – that one, or the one below of him holding a press conference yesterday on the difference between textbooks and Kindles that drew … one reporter (via Twitchy):

I’m sure the only reason there was only a one single reporter at a Weiner press conference Saturday was because it was Labor Day weekend, not because he has seriously tanked in the polls. Yep, I’m sure that’s the real excuse…

      What, he couldn’t have paid for some actors to pretend to be reporters? ;)

      They weren’t available as they were busy covering red-line man’s golf game as “interested” spectators and reporters.

      I believe Freud called this “penis envy.”

    4. EBL says:

      I almost feel sad for him.

      I think even he knows he’s dead in the water. So he can either quietly bow out or ride to the finish line as flamboyantly as he can manage, grabbing attention all the way. The most cursory inspection of this man’s character tells you which course he’d take.

      Thing is, when the election’s over we won’t have seen the last of Anthony Weiner. After as brief a period in the wilderness as he can stand he’ll come back. He’s not going to get a real job – politics is all he knows, plus he and his wife really believe they’re entitled to a life on the public dime. He is emblematic of his class – a parasitic entity, a bloated tick on the posterior of the body politic.

      There was this guy way back in 1968 named Louis Abolofia who printed up flyers of himself buck-nekkid to run for President with the caption “What Have I Got To Hide?” That’s funny; Weiner denied that the pictures were of him about 8 times. Can’t have a liar in office BEFORE they’re elected…
